"All of our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone that makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope. All the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there’s someone perfect who might be searching for us.” - Kevin Arnold ( The Wonder Years)"
Education is the biggest civil rights issue of my generation! I pray that my generation can find the strength of the children in Soweto, South Africa who marched for equal education and the children who marched in Alabama when the older generation could no longer carry the burden. Our history shows us that the younger generation must demand and create change. We must not wait for the older generation to pass the torch to us. After all the generation before us stopped waiting for torch and now we must do the same. Let us find and light our own torch. I pray we find the strength!
She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. — Barbara Alpert
Words from a North Carolina state rep, Virginia Foxx: ”I have very little tolerance for people who tell me that they graduate with $200,000 of debt or even $80,000 of debt because there’s no reason for that. We live in an opportunity society and people are forgetting that. I remind folks all the time that the Declaration of Independence says ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ You don’t sit on your butt and have it dumped in your lap.” I wonder if she even knows the people she “represents”?
Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning, they want the ocean without the awful roar of its waters. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. - Frederick Douglass, August 1857
